Timeform on Valseur Lido

VALSEUR LIDO - 16:20 Clonmel

VALSEUR LIDO has been well below par on his last two starts but has his sights lowered now and will take a bit of stopping if back to anywhere near his best. He carries top weight but is 8 lb clear of his rivals on Timeform weight-adjusted ratings and the former Jnwine.com Champion Chase winner is the one to beat. The Willie Mullins-trained Koshari gets the nod for the forecast spot ahead of Shadow Catcher.

LUCKYINMILAN - 16:20 Clonmel

The Oliver McKiernan-trained LUCKYINMILAN showed improved form to open his account over fences here nine days ago and probably still has more to offer in this sphere given his hurdles form. He can race off a mark of 97, still 8 lb lower than his highest winning mark over the smaller obstacles. Se Mo Laoch and Enduring Love both caught the eye last time and head the dangers.

CASTLEBAWN WEST - 16:20 Clonmel

CASTLEBAWN WEST was clearly thought capable given his strength in the betting (sent off the 5/4-on favourite) when last of four at Thurles 60 days ago, and given connections he represents, is highly likely worth another chance to get back on track. Ask Henry makes plenty of appeal on paper and market support behind him should be viewed positively.
